This design was featured in STAMPING ARTS & CRAFTS (May/June 1999). I'm sorry but I don't know who the original designer/author was. I'll try to find out and update with the information.

8" x 11" cardstock or paper
5" square of cardstock for base of card
glue or double stick tape
1. Along the long sides of the cardstock, lightly mark the center points. Lightly mark the middle point of the sheet. Turn sheet over and lightly mark the middle point.

Stamp the card as desired. Remember to decorate both sides of the sheet.

2. With inside of card up, fold the top and bottom edges (long sides) to the center dot. Crease well. Unfold and turn the sheet over.
3.Using the center edge mark as a guide, fold the upper right and left corners down toward the center of the sheet so that both corners meet as shown. Crease well ONLY along the section shown in RED. Unfold and repeat for the bottom edge. Unfold.
4. Make note of the four intersecting points made in the previous step. If desired, mark lightly with pencil. These will be your reference points for the next 2 folds. Turn the sheet over.
5. Using the points from step 4 as your guide, fold the left side of the sheet toward the center of the card. Crease well and unfold. Repeat for the other side.
6. Fold the top and bottom edges to the center. Do not unfold.
7. Use your right hand to hold the right side of the card in place. With your left hand, lift the left side and fold it over toward the center of the card. Allow the corners to bow outward and press flat, forming flaps at the top and bottom. Crease well. Do not unfold.
8. Fold the flaps toward the center so that they meet in the middle. Do not unfold.
9. Grasp the right hand edge of the section you have just folded and fold it back over the flaps, aligning the fold with the center dot made in step 1. Crease well. Do not unfold.
10. Repeat steps 7 - 9 for the right side of the card.
11. Glue or tape the folded card onto the square base.
